Bentworth Care Group

Care Group The Villager

The Care Group hosted another successful Bingo Tea for our regular ‘customers’ on 19th February. Thanks again to Stella Strachan for hosting at her lovely home and Jean Cornelius for being a very able ‘caller’. Also to all the other members for their contributions of delicious savoury dishes and divine cakes! We had a total of 8 guests but only 9 Care Group members due to nasty bugs and holiday commitments. ...

It has been my good fortune over the past few years to co-ordinate the Neighbourhood Watch service for Bentworth.

Bentworth Pond

Parish Council

By the time this is published we will hopefully be firmly into spring weather and the snow and ice a distant memory. The village pond has retained its water level and there has been a lovely display of snowdrops around it and the daffodils are just beginning to show (they are probably in flower by now). ...

Bentworth Parish Neighbourhood Plan

Neighbourhood Plan Parish Council The Villager

In late January we learned that the government had moved the goal-posts. EHDC briefed representatives of all towns and parishes in the region of changes which were being made at national level through the government’s most recent Housing White Paper and subsequent amendments to legislation, National Planning Policy Guidance and National Planning Policy Framework. You may have seen some reporting on this in the national or local press. ...

Garden Notes – Vegetables

Garden Club The Villager

I have always grown vegetables and would hate to stop doing it, but I had to rethink it lately to make less work. Firstly why grow those that you can easily buy. Like onions, maincrop potatoes, cabbages etc. You need to concentrate on those that taste so much better straight from the garden. New potatoes with skin you can just push off and broad beans that you can pick before they get large and leathery and you can afford to have large bowls of them. Snap peas are great straight from the vine. The french beans both climbing and dwarf and runner beans are easily available but are so productive it seems a shame not to grow them. Like courgettes, where three plants bought from the garden centre will supply all you need. If you are very cheffy you may like to stuff the flowers. ...
